|Priority||normal||Severity||minor||Reproducibility||have not tried|
|Platform||OS||Debian GNU/Linux||OS Version|
|Target Version||Fixed in Version||0.next|
|Summary||0002189: please consider adding /usr/share/games/vcmi as a data lookup path|
|Description||Vcmi stores static game data in /usr/share/vcmi which is totally correct from an XDG point of view. But the FHS (filesystem hierarchy standard) specifies /usr/share/games as the base directory for static game data. So it would be great if vcmi could add /usr/share/games/vcmi as an additional directory to look for game data after having looked in /usr/share/vcmi. That way, Debian could store static game data in /usr/share/games/vcmi without deviating from vcmi upstream in its lookup path. This would be convenient for Debian as most other games in Debian store their static game data in /usr/share/games as well because of the FHS.|

I just added /usr/share/games/vcmi lookup dir here:
Please report back if it's work as intended!
I cannot confirm that it works.
I just built latest git HEAD and I see that lib/VCMIDirs.cpp adds:
ret.push_back(bfs::path("/usr/share/games") / "vcmi");
And I have my data in /usr/share/games/vcmi but when I start vcmi I get:
Error: Heroes III data was not found!
It's won't work if you run it from "bin" in build directory.
I intentionally made VCMI ignore all system-wide data when both binaries and "config", "Mods" directories are together. This way I can be sure that game installed from repository is not interfere with development.
That makes lots of sense.
But then I don't see why your commit shouldn't work and I guess you can close this bug report. :)
